GFCI in Bathroom Keeps Tripping

I have a GFCI outlet in my hall bathroom that feeds 2 more outlets in my master bathroom. I lost power in the master bathroom past the GFCI but i was still able to use the outlet in the hall bathroom. I recently thought I needed to replace the hall bathroom GFCI and it would give power to the two outlets in the master bath. I replaced the GFCI in the hall bathroom and this did not work and the new GCFI keeps tripping every time I try to reset it. Any ideas on what it could be?

Most likely a loose or broken connection in the hall bathroom box, the master bathroom box or perhaps a mystery box on that circuit somewhere in between (a switch, receptacle, light or fan are all potential possibilities).

High current loads like a hair dryer can cause a weak connection to burn through or fail.
